Evelyn - Cavite, Philippines

I am Angelo Celestial, and I am writing in behalf of my wife Evelyn.

We have been married for 25 years now and God has blessed us with 3 children: Michael, Sante and Angelyn.

My wife Evelyn is a 24-year-old disciple. My son Sante and his wife and my daughter Angelyn are faithful Christians as well. It is our prayer that my eldest son Michael and his wife will be restored back to the faith.   

Evelyn, 53 years old, was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. She started feeling intense pain in her stomach last August 2020. She undergoes abdominal ultrasound and was advice for colonoscopy and endoscopy. We tried to get a medical checkup at Philippine General Hospital but it took us 3 months of waiting to be enlisted. This pandemic made things a lot harder. Her condition has worsened. She can’t eat…and whenever she would try to eat some, she would later on vomit whatever food she tried to swallow.

The results of Evelyn’s colonoscopy and endoscopy, showed big tumors in her colon and she was scheduled for an operation. After the operation last February 2021, we found out that the cancer has spread to her liver and pancreas. She needed to regain her strength in order for her to undergo chemotherapy. We are so grateful to the church for the help that has been extended to us – spiritually, emotionally, even financially. The collective support of many people has somehow helped ease the burden with the hospital expenses incurred.

We live a very simple life. I am a tricycle driver but I can’t work right now because I personally take care of Evelyn round the clock. I don’t know what else to do. I just want to take care of her with the remaining time she has with us. There are times that I would be overcome with fear…depression…thinking what will happen with our lives. But thanks be to God who never fails to provide for our needs. Today, we put our hope in God’s mercy and grace. Whatever help we may receive will be of much help to sustain us and meet her needs at this time. Thank you very much.
